The Berkeley Law and Organizing Collective (BLOC) provides law students with an opportunity to provide legal support for worker organizing on the Berkeley campus. BLOC members work closely with UAW Local 2865, the largest academic student employee union in the country. Students gain familiarity with national and California labor law by doing legal research to support the union’s organizing goals. We approach our work from a movement lawyering perspective focused on building the capacity and power of working people.
Supervision: Students engaged in BLOC’s efforts will be supervised by a local labor law attorney.
Time commitment: Approximately 20 hours per semester.
